Electronics Recycling

The Village of Vernon Hills' Public Works Department is in cooperation with the Solid Waste Agency of Lake County (SWALCO) as a year-round used electronics collection site. The Vernon Hills Public Works Facility is located at 490 Greenleaf Drive with drop-off boxes located on the east side of the building within the parking lot near the gate entrance. Drop-offs can be done throughout the day and after hours; with no appointment necessary. If your item is too large to fit inside the box, please place the item on the ground next to it.  All items must be free of any packaging material, operating manuals and loose, broken glass.
